unlike at Florida, SC had nothing...and their QB play has been mediocre at best
Rice WAS their offense...everyone knew he was getting the ball and still couldnt stop him, and he did this against outstanding SEC talent
also, Spurrier was extremely disappointed Rice didnt return, and it wasnt because he thought Rice wasnt ready for the NFL...its because he knew he had a special player
like I said earlier, I'd be thrilled if we got him
